All week we’ve been talking about good vs. bad. in design and marketing – but what about good vs. bad in your own office space? We’ve definitely experienced “the bad” as previously blogged about in our December “Organizing Your Office for the New Year” post. We have a smaller office space and with a growing staff – a majority of the “stuff” we don’t use on an everyday basis goes down into the basement. Our basement was supposed to be a place for the designers to comp, cut, and layout large projects if needed – but by the holiday season we had everything from gifts, and craft supplies to old, OLD files and way too many cardboard boxes filling up the room. It got to the point where we couldn’t even find a hole punch – bought a new hole – and then 3 more turned up in the basement.
Having a cluttered office space definitely falls into the “bad” category – but as promised – I recently completed “Phase 2″ of the basement project. It’s definitely “good” if I do say so myself – but I’ll let you be the judge of that…
What do you think? We’ve still have a ways to go – with many files to be gone through and shredders to meet! But I think we’re well on our way to the “good” side!
